The Reds emerged for the after the interval still very much in the tie, and in search of an equaliser. But the hosts had other ideas, and started the second 45 as strong as they had finished the first.
Danny Anijsko, who was a thorn in United’s side all afternoon, was integral to Forest and won a penalty shortly after the restart. The tricky forward forced Jaydan Kamason into a challenge just inside the box, leaving the referee with no choice but to point to the spot. Forest skipper Kyle McAdam stepped up and buried the spot-kick in the top corner, sending Harrison the wrong way.
The hosts continued their ruthlessness going forward, and were soon three goals to the good after brilliant play involving George Hemmings, with Forest’s no.8 slotting the ball through into the path of Anijsko. Harrison rushed out to close the angle, but Anijsko was first to it and lifted it over our shot-stopper to put the game to bed.
